Hey all,

So there's now a new section specifically for classic feature films, as part of the movie collections. This will grow to house the films Skip will be uploading, which I'm told number at least 100.

Also placed in this collection, because it seemed suitable, were the two movies AKB uploaded, Reefer Madness and Hemp For Victory. Please note that this means the URL for these movies has changed - you may want to adjust your links if you were linking there.

Thanks,
Simon.

Hey, great stuff!! Looking forward to seeing what's uploaded here!

Coincidentally enough, I saw D.O.A. on sale in town in a pound shop (where everything is £1 in case you aren't aware of the concept ^_^), then came back + noticed it on archive.org!!

Saved me a quid! :)

If it saved you a quid, I would assume that means you are in the UK.

As far as I know, DOA is not in the public domain in the UK because they do not follow the Rule of the Shorter Term. You have to wait until all the "authors" are dead for 70 years.

Cool. Does Skip have a list of films we can expect?

Now that all these p2p sharin' DVD rippin' college kids have been scared by the copyright industry maybe we can get them to put their skills to work ripping public domain material issued on DVD. Some good additions off the top of my head:

Birth of a Nation
Night of the Living Dead
Royal Wedding (Fred Astaire)
Angel and the Badman (John Wayne)
The Chinese Connection (Bruce Lee)

Of course, they should do their homework as DVD's often have redone sound or added scenes which are copyrighted.

Umm... From what I can tell college kids are not too 'fraid of 'Big C'.
